Some of you may know I recently signed up for the Christmas in July Book Swap over at Book Monsters. Can I just say I got matched up with the absolute best partner ever? I mean look at that package! She's a professional swapper, I'm telling you! Oh yeah, her name is Jenn and she blogs at HipMamaJenn.

For those of us that have poor eyesight and require the use of glasses it can often be a lofty yearly expense. If you don't have vision insurance, you pay for a trip to the doctor for the prescription, a fitting, lenses, frames, etc. Even with insurance, there is still some of that money coming out of pocket, because if your insurance is anything like mine it only covers up to a certain percentage of the frames and/or lenses.
Did you know there were other options? Until a few months ago I had no idea you could or should order glasses online. I've always purchased from brick and mortar stores and spent hundreds of dollars on glasses. This usually results in me waiting years to purchase new ones because I don't want to fork out the money-thus I end up squinting through scratched lenses for far too long. But no more! There are great places online where you can get your glasses for half the cost. Sometimes, even less than half.
When Firmoo offered to send me a pair of lenses to review I jumped at the opportunity, as at the time I was desperately dealing with scratched glasses I'd had for about 3 years. The process was surprisingly easy! I uploaded a photo of me (I took it with my phone spur of the moment, so while it wasn't particularly flattering, it was a good indicator of what the glasses will look like on me!) and was able to use their fantastic system to try the glasses on my photo to see what they would look like. They also provide all the measurements you need to make sure they are going to fit your face properly. They offer comprehensive instructions on how to use it too! When the glasses I chose arrived I was stoked, just look how pretty they are!
It took me a little while to adjust to wearing them. I'm not sure if it has anything to do with the design or if it's a flaw in the prescription my optometrist provided, but I've since grown accustomed and only have issues for a few minutes in the morning when I put them on. I love the complex colors and designs that Firmoo offers, there were so many choices to choose from that narrowing it down was really difficult! However I'm extremely happy with my choice, and my roommate immediately complimented me on how they brighten up my face, and the colors go so great with my red hair and outfit choices! Just look!
I can definitely say I will most likely be ordering from Firmoo again! I love them!
